The Momentum Dance Series, presented by Amazon, is a site-responsive dance series presented in collaboration with choreographer Peter DiMuro and four local dance companies: Continuum Dance Project, Jean Appolon Expressions, Public Displays of Motion, and Vimoksha Dance Company. Throughout September, each Saturday features one dance company performing twice per day at their selected locations along The Greenway. This series culminates in the Momentum Dance Festival on October 7. All events are free and open to the public.
Jean Appolon truly sees the similarities between the immigrant trauma experiences by both Haitians and Armenians, especially here at this site, Armenian Heritage Park. Trauma is very universal, as well as how we can collectively heal. Often, countries have some kind of traditional, folkloric dance and practice and often these dances are ignored. This work, Popouri, is helping to bring light to this type of folkloric tradition and identity, while uplifting how it can support the healing process. JAE’s movement style is grounded in accessibility and aims to inspire audiences to move and breathe together.
This series is made possible by presenting sponsor Amazon, with additional support from the Greenway Business Improvement District (BID), Meet Boston, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
